Royal Lodge is named after the Royal Hotel which formerly stood on the site, and also because of the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, in the year in which it opened.
Royal Lodge is ideally located at the end of the High Street within easy reach of the local shops and essential amenities including a doctors, dentist, Post Office and library. It is also well located for Riversmeet, a community, sports and fitness centre with facilities which include a fitness suite, sports hall, swimming pool, dance studio, therapy room and the town's bowling club.
